Callum Beresford and Lewis Ullah have been awarded places in the BetVictor English Open, as the two nominations from the English Partnership for Snooker and Billiards.
The BetVictor Home Nations Series event will run from December 12 to 18 and will be staged at the Brentwood Centre in Essex for the first time.
Beresford, age 21 from Yorkshire, is the current EPSB Under-21 Champion, having beaten Oliver Skyes 8-2 in this year’s final.
Ullah, age 20 from Burnley, finished number one on the EPSB Under-21 Premier Tour rankings last season.
Both players will be included in the field for the event when the draw is made in October.
Neil Robertson won the BetVictor English Open title last year and other recent winners include Judd Trump, Mark Selby, Stuart Bingham and Ronnie O’Sullivan. The event will be televised by Eurosport and a wide range of other broadcasters around the globe.
